Food saving tips for free

How would you like to save £430 every year? That’s the question asked by Zero Waste Scotland’s Love Food Hate Waste campaign.

They says £430 is the average value of food wasted per year by people in Scotland.

Aberdeen Forward will be hosting an event we call “Love Food” in association with Pampered Chef which aims to help you save money with tips and advice, fancy recipes for your leftovers and the chance to get involved with an interactive cooking demonstration.

Ruth Morris (an independent Pampered Chef Consultant) will be hosting an interactive cooking show that will provide attendees with the opportunity to try innovative multifunctional kitchen tools whilst learning to prepare impressive recipes quickly.

In addition, Gillian Marr will provide tips and advice along the Love Food Hate Waste theme, including how to shop smart to save money, making clever use of leftovers and how to make food last longer.

The event on May 16 is free to attend with no obligation to pay anything and will be held at Aberdeen Forward’s Sustainable Communities Centre at 2 Poynernook Road, Aberdeen from 7 to 9pm.
